Making a commit through Bitbucket Server REST API - 405 Error

I'm trying to use the Bitbucket Server REST API to make a commit, either uploading a new file or modifying an existing one. 

According the the documentation ( this can be done by making a PUT request to 


encoding as multipart form. However, when I do this I get an HTTP 405 error (Method Not Allowed) and indeed when I make an OPTIONS request to this URL I see that only GET, OPTIONS are allowed.  

What is going wrong and how do I use the REST API to make a commit?

I am using Stash version 4.2.3 so it's possible this is a version issue and I'm also trying to commit to a personal repository with a user-centric URL. I have made various successful requests to the API with this repository though and this is the only one that isn't working.

All help is very much appreciated!

I faced the same hurdle and resorted to using JGit. Did you ever find out how to commit using this API?
